GRAND RAPIDS—The Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company will perform Shakespeare’s Henry V at the Dog Story Theater, 7 Jefferson SE in Grand Rapids for two weekends in June. This production is part of a larger project in which Pigeon Creek is producing Shakespeare’s English history plays over the course of several seasons.
The production is directed by Angela and Francis Boyle, visiting directors who are also from the Cincinnati area, who previously directed the production of Richard II which kicked off Pigeon Creek’s tour of Shakespeare’s histories. There will be a preview performance on June 15 at 8:00 p.m.. Tickets to this preview performance are $5 for all patrons. Tickets for the preview are available at the door only, on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Henry V is an action-filled story which follows the famous English king as he leads his rag-tag army against the heavily favored French, ultimately confronting his enemies at the famous battle of Agincourt. Actors’ Equity Association actor Paul Riopelle returns to play King Henry, after having portrayed Prince Hal in last year’s Henry IV, which tells the story of the same character before he takes the throne. The cast also features actors Alyssa Banister, Mike Dodge, Ryan Farrell, Josh Fremer, Amanda Grah, Michael Hays, Kat Hermes, Bridget McCarthy, Ashley Normand, Steven Schwall, and Scott Wright.
